Travel firm chooses Cumbria to open first office in England

A Scottish travel firm has chosen Cumbria to open its first English base, creating 50 jobs.

Glasgow-based Barrhead Travel, which employs 550 people in 34 offices north of the border, is to set up a call centre and travel agent in Barrow.

The firm said it will employ many of the 55 workers whose jobs were at risk of redundancy at the doomed Barrow travel business Cumbria Cruise Centre.

Managing director Jacqueline Dobson said: “We chose Barrow because of the skilled, experienced, fantastic staff who are being made redundant and because we want to expand our business.”

The firm plans to expand further in Barrow in the next six months and will be exploring the corporate travel market.
